Bumble has collaborated with Bloom to provide supplemental trauma support to members of its global online community who experience sexual assault or relationship abuse. The Bumble feedback team will submit a free access code after receiving any reports of relationship abuse or sexual assault from the app community.
The partnership aims for the app community to receive up to six therapy sessions and one-on-one chat support with the Bloom team, along with Bloom’s readily available library of resources. The resource library has been created by trauma-informed survivors and therapists.
On the partnership, Rachel Haas, Vice President of Member Safety at Bumble, said: “As someone who has dedicated her life to supporting survivors, I know the enormous impact we can have on a person’s healing by providing access to support. what do you need. and deserve. We are proud to partner with Bloom to be the first in the industry to pioneer an expert-led, trauma-informed Survivor Resource Program. “

Bumble will offer the personalized therapy through Bloom’s full-time staff to select Bumble users later this year. The user base will gradually expand. Bumble also wants to launch services on Badoo next year.
